Qimam Fellowship for high-potential leaders launches in Saudi Arabia

The Qimam Fellowship Program was launched on Sunday in Saudi Arabia. Qimam aims to identify, develop, and empower the most promising and distinguished university students in the country to achieve their full potential. The program, which aims to attract top talent from the Kingdom, has been created based on the belief that Saudi Arabia is rich with extraordinary talent, and that developing such talent is one of the best investments for a brighter future.
The program will provide its fellows with one-on-one mentorship from senior public and private sector leaders, leadership training by professionals from renowned companies, visits to the Saudi Arabian offices of leading national and international companies, membership in the Qimam Alumni Network, an award for their distinctiveness upon completion of the program during a high-profile ceremony, and will share profiles of fellows with leading HR leaders in the Kingdom to facilitate their career opportunities.
The Qimam Fellowship Program would not have been possible without the contributions of its partner companies, Al-Khaleejiah Advertising & Public Relations Company, Al-Tayyar Travel Group Holding, Careem, Cisco, Community Jameel, General Electric, Ma’aden (Saudi Arabian Mining Company), McKinsey & Company, Oqal, Pearson, Saudi Telecom Company (STC), Rocket Internet, Aberkyn, and SMAAT, as well as a large number of executives from the public and private sectors.
Annas Abedin, founding CEO of Qimam, said: “Thanks to the contributions of our partners, we will be able to offer high-potential university students in and from Saudi Arabia a unique development experience that will hopefully help them get closer toward achieving their professional dreams and aspirations.”
The program targets bachelor’s and master’s students of all nationalities at any Saudi university, as well as Saudi nationals studying for a bachelor’s or master’s degree at universities abroad.
Fellows will be selected into the program based on their academic achievements, their level of initiative taking beyond the academic realm, and their exhibited degree of social responsibility and service to the community.
The fellowship is open for applications starting Sunday, and will remain open until March 24. The application form and more details about the Qimam Fellowship can be found on www.qimam.com

Bahri strengthens market footprint in Asia-Pacific region

Saudi logistics and transportation company Bahri has announced the expansion of its market presence in the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region’s maritime industry. The stronger presence will help the company gain deeper insights into market trends as well as customer needs in chemicals and logistics sectors in Singapore and the wider APAC region.
The announcement took place at a ceremony held on April 5 at Regent Hotel in Singapore, in the presence of Abdullah Aldubaikhi, CEO of Bahri, and senior executives of the region’s oil majors, petrochemical trading companies and ship brokers.
The expansion will also enable Bahri Logistics and Bahri Chemicals, two of five business units of the company, to market their offerings, acquire new clients, serve existing clients, and channelize the communications. Bahri has plans to expand the services of its other business units to the APAC region in the future.
Bahri CEO Aldubaikhi said: “In our efforts to deliver on Bahri’s vision of connecting economies, sharing prosperity, and driving excellence in global logistics services, we have been actively pursuing the company’s ambitious long-term strategy to drive sustainable growth and expand its market footprint. As a result, we have established a solid presence regionally and globally. Our expansion in the Asia-Pacific region represents a key milestone in our journey, and with this, we have come even closer to our customers, allowing us to serve them better offering a wider range of industry services and unprecedented value.”
Over the past 41 years, Bahri has steadily expanded market presence to cement its position as a global leader in the maritime industry. The company currently has offices in Saudi Arabia, UAE, US and India, in addition to a vast network of agents across the Middle East and Africa, US, Europe, and Asia.
Bahri Chemicals is the largest owner and operator of chemical carriers in the Middle East, serving 150 ports worldwide. It owns and operates 36 chemical/product tankers with a capacity of 1.1 million DWT designed to the highest specifications, capable of carrying a wide range of chemical cargoes. The first business unit within Bahri, Bahri Logistics, is one of the top 10 breakbulk carriers in the world and operates six new state-of-the-art multipurpose vessels with 26,000 DWT each on a regular liner schedule.
